Description

Darius Boyd has been named the Ron McAuliffe Medal winner as Queenslands State of Origin player of the year. Darius Slayton Womens Jersey .And Brisbane great Willie Carne believes Boyd should also receive another honour - the Broncos captaincy.Boyd, 29, was a revelation when he stepped up in the Maroons No.1 jersey for the first time in 2016 in the absence of injured Billy Slater.He received the prestigious medal after Corey Parker was awarded the Maroons honour last year.Carne believes Boyd should also take over from Parker as Brisbane skipper.Boyd has been shortlisted by Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett for the captaincy along with ex-skipper Sam Thaiday and hooker Andrew McCullough following Parkers 2016 retirement.I think he is the perfect fit as captain, Carne told AAP.Broncos captains have always been players who have led by example and that is what Darius does.He might come across as a quietly spoken bloke at the best of times.But he has a heap of experience and gets out there and does it.It would be a good call.Boyd is favourite for the Brisbane captaincy which is set to be unveiled in January by Bennett.It would cap a remarkable turnaround for the once-troubled NRL star.Boyd quit Newcastle in 2014 and was treated for depression before being sidelined with a torn achilles on his return to the Broncos in 2015.Now healthy on and off the field, Boyd has returned to his career-best form of 2010 when he was Dally M fullback of the year and a premiership-winning Clive Churchill Medallist.Boyd, named Brisbanes best and fairest this season, has been shortlisted for the Golden Boot Award as the worlds best rugby league player.Boyd was passed over for the Brisbane captaincy 12 months ago after claiming he wasnt ready.Boyd was also fearful that being named captain would prompt speculation he received preferential treatment from Bennett, the coach under whom he had played his entire career.But Carne said Boyds captaincy claims were now undeniable.He has had an amazing year, Carne said.Sure, Wayne (Bennett) can do whatever he wants as coach and Boyd has played under Wayne his whole career.But I dont think Wayne has ever favoured him over anyone else at his clubs.The fact is, the kid can play.And he has learned a lot in the past year about himself.I think he is ready. Michael Strahan Womens Jersey . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Eli Manning Jersey . The Canadian squad, skipped by Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, got on the board first with two in the second end, and followed that with two more apiece in the fourth and sixth ends. http:///...-Jersey.html?cat=863 . -- Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago. Narsingh Yadavs Rio dreams have ended even before it started, as the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) overturned the National Anti-Doping Agencys (NADA) decision to clear the wrestler of doping charges. Instead, the CAS upheld the World Anti-Doping Agencys (WADA) appeal, which had questioned the clearance, and has handed Narsingh a four-year suspension, starting today.?The CAS further ruled that all competitive results obtained by Narsingh from and including 25 June 2016 shall be disqualified, with all resulting consequences (including forfeiture of medals, points and prizes).Narsingh had tested positive for methandionene, a banned substance, on July 23, and was provisionally suspended. However, he was cleared by a NADA disciplinary panel on August 2, after they accepted Narsinghs sabotage theory - where he claimed his food had been spiked with illegal substances - and exonerated him from all charges.The CAS panel, though, noted that there was no evidence that he bore no fault, nor that the anti-doping rule violation was not intentional, thereby imposing the standard four-year period of ineligibility.?On Wednesday, soon aftter WADA lodged their appeal against Narsinghs clean chit, the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) had said that?the timing of the appeal was unusual since they had forwarded the NADA decision well in advance, and had even received clearance from them. Doug Kotar Jersey. ?Narsingh is one of our best medal contenders. To put him through this mental agony just ahead of his bout is really unfortunate, the WFI had said.Narsingh was due to begin his 74kg campaign in the round of 32 against Frances?Zelimkhan Khadjiev at 6:38 PM IST on Friday, but following the CAS decision, Khadjiev will now be given a walkover.?The latest decision comes as a huge blow to Narsingh, at the end of what has been a controversial and turbulent Olympic journey for the wrestler, which also included?a public and bitter spat with double Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar, who was the other contender for the sole spot in the 74kg freestyle category. Narsingh was favoured as he had earned the Olympic quota in the World Championships last year.? ' ' '
